We live in by far one of the busiest corridors as it is the heart of DC nightlife. There are over 100 bars, restaurants, book shops, grocery stores, gyms, buses, bike stations and metro within 1/2 mile. Our walk score is 97/100.
Our apt isn't a new posh complex, it was build in the 80's but has all the usual amenities. Our front door has a security fob to let you in, the apt complex is pretty small for DC but it's a great area to live in.
